CR84FN31 - Sew Fun


Sew happy you stopped by... (Excuse my  pun....:)  The Moxie Fab World Challenge is I'm sew excited which I combined with the beautiful CR84FN colors to create a vintage sewing card.


I started with some lovely Websters Pages papers for the background which were distressed with a little white acrylic paint and the Ranger distressing tool.

The background was stamped over using part of the beautiful new stamp plate from Chapel Road Artstamps Sew Much to Do .  I hadn't inked up the sewing image before and loved the graceful lines of the lady working away at her sewing machine. (A skill I definitely don't posses :)

Products: Websters Pages - Beautiful Life, Class Act - Chapel Road Artstamps - So Much to Do, Ranger Acrylic Snow Cap Dauber, Charm, Silk Ribbon, Rose - Recollections, Ranger Archival Ink - Black

The lovely CR84FN31 colors:
